New World Order – Global Governance
He states, “President Obama’s pick for Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner, is being urged to lay the foundation for “global governance” by considering “international taxation” measures to loot more money from U.S. taxpayers”.
Cliff writes about the recommendation included in the report, “The Global Agenda 2009,” which is being considered by the World Economic Forum (WEF), meeting in Davos, Switzerland, January 28 – February 1.” The WEF is not an official government group but does include dozens of government, corporate and labor leaders at its annual meetings.
The meeting is subsidised by major media corporations who are hailing this meeting as the way forward; the road to recovery. One of the co-chairs is Rupert Murdoch.
“The Global Agenda 2009” report urges creation of a global television channel.
“Media has the capacity to connect the world, bridging cultures and peoples, and telling us who we are and what we mean to each other. The media can also ensure that no voice goes unheard,” it says. “We believe that this new moment also calls for a new media platform, across all media channels, a global non-profit ‘CNN’ providing a new form of independent journalism to inform, illuminate and deepen knowledge about issues that improve the state of the world.”
Besides having a Global media, there is the issue of the economy.
The event’s corporate sponsors, which pay about half a million dollars each to participate, include several failing institutions that have received tens of billions of dollars from U.S. taxpayers. They include Bank of America, Citi, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Morgan Stanley. These entities are termed “Strategic Partners” of the World Economic Forum.
These banks are owned and directed by some of the wealthiest people in the world including David Rockerfeller who thanked the world media for keeping their silence for the fruition of the NWO
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.”
He went on to explain:
“It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.”
— David Rockefeller, Speaking at the June, 1991 Bilderberg meeting in Baden, Germany (a meeting also attended by then-Governor Bill Clinton and by Dan Quayle.
They are also the banks that have been buying out other banks and are linked to each other with investments.
Cliff Kincaid’s article continues with a major embarrassment to the World Economic Forum.
The WEF has released a report, “The Future of the Global Financial System,” which acknowledges “intellectual stewardship and guidance” provided by a steering committee co-chaired by John Thain, the former Merrill Lynch & Co. chief executive officer who was recently ousted from Bank of America in a scandal. Thain oversaw the disastrous sale of Merrill Lynch to Bank of America and was criticized for lavish spending on office decorations, including a $1,405 waste basket and $87,784 rug.
The other co-chair of the committee was David Rubenstein, co-founder and managing director of The Carlyle Group, who has been quoted as saying that China holds the key to the world economy’s future. One report notes that Rubenstein says Carlyle “was an early investor in the Chinese marketplace,” that its China office “has hired many native-born Chinese, and the company is seeking to build its buyout and growth-capital businesses there.”
“The Global Agenda 2009” report says that “sovereign states do not adequately address problems reaching across borders” and that “international taxation” may be needed to generate the “additional resources” for “global governance.”
Other initiatives and their progress.
Launched during the Governors Meeting for IT/Telecoms on the occasion of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2003, has made significant progress in its overall objective to raise awareness and support the implementation of relevant, sustainable and scalable national education sector plans on a global level through catalysing Multistakeholder Partnerships for Education (MSPEs).
International business leaders, together with governments and climate specialists, have drawn up a comprehensive set of recommendations on a post-2012 framework for global climate policy.
The “CEO Climate Policy Recommendations to G8 Leaders” helped inform G8 leaders’ climate change discussions at their Hokkaido-Toyako summit in July 2008.
The recommendations were handed to Yasuo Fukuda, Prime Minister of Japan, who is the current G8 President, by Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, on Friday 20 June 2008 in Japan.
A Steering Board consisting of the following World Economic Forum Industry Partner companies guided development of this CEO statement for the G8: Alcoa (USA), AIG (USA), Applied Materials (USA), Basic Element (Russian Federation), British Airways (UK), Deutsche Bank (Germany), Duke Energy (USA), ElectricitÃ© de France (EdF) (France), Eskom (South Africa), Petrobras (Brazil), RusHydro (Russian Federation), Royal Dutch Shell (Netherlands), Telstra (Australia), Tokyo Electric Power (Japan), TNT (Netherlands), Vattenfall (Sweden).
The process was coordinated by the World Economic Forum in collaboration with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. The Pew Centre on Global Climate Change served as a resource partner.
Through the Women Leaders and Gender Parity Programme, the World Economic Forum is committed to promoting women’s leadership and closing global gender gaps. The programme strives to increase the participation of women in the Forum’s activities by ensuring their involvement as members in communities and inviting women leaders to be active contributors to the global dialogue.
The programme also aims to monitor progress of countries through benchmarking tools that measure the global gender gap and to showcase best practices in the business world for increasing gender diversity. This unique content is used to promote dialogue and catalyze action through Gender Parity Groups — multi-stakeholder communities of highly influential leaders (50% women and 50% men) committed to closing gender gaps.
